Another wave of Korean BBQ franchise
? Soban K-Town –?
? Robinsons Place Manila, Manila City
? Date for Two: Premium BBQ Combo Set
? Total: P2200
Sophisticated and simple can be the best words to describe Soban K-Town Grill. A no-fuss Korean restaurant that has started to invade the country to add to the K-craze.
We’ve been seeing the branch from their Greenbelt store, but sadly, the restaurant was always full. This branch at Robinsons Place Manila was less crowded, well at least at that moment.
Premium BBQ Combo Set (P2200) – Okay guys no judging please. We ordered the set that’s good for 3-4. Haha! We were a bit disappointed that their meats were not unlimited so we underestimated the set. And yes, as expected, it was a lot. IKR.
Egg Casserole – It’s literally steamed egg with a few onion chives and carrots on top. We’re a bit disappointed they did not bother to make this casserole tasty, or put any seasoning at all. It was too bland.
Side Dishes – Unlimited side dishes, yay! Though they have just too few ban chan variants, they’re all okay. We had everything refilled every now and then, especially their omelette.
Pajeon – Seafood pancake at its finest! We think we’d still be happy to go home even if this one’s just our order. It’s super yummy! Too heavy though, we still didn’t finish the plate despite our bias to this dish.
Japchae – This one’s so filling! We like Bonchon’s Japchae more though. But we must admit, we’re already full even without the grilled meats! Haha!
Gimbap – Also included was this gimbap, the serving we got was half compared to their a la carte order. It was actually huge so the half serving was more than enough for us.
Boneless Fried Chicken – Our personal fave! We love how crunchy it was on the outside and very juicy on the inside. We emptied this plate first and did kinda hope we still have more.
Premium Marinated Beef – 180 grams of USDA Choice Premium beef. Our expectations got higher for this as it was labeled as premium. However, we think the meat we got was not that fresh we have to cook it for long to get rid of the funky smell. It tasted okay but there’s nothing really special about it.
Pork Belly – 180 grams of samgyupsal goodness! Who wouldn’t want this? The simple, the better. We paired this with the usual red bean sauce and sesame oil, wrapped in fresh lettuce or topped on rice. Their cut was a bit thinner compared to other samgyupsals in the market so best to not overcook it.
Kimchi Rice – The set comes with an unlimited kimchi rice. We’ve tried it once but it’s overly tasty (and spicy!) so we requested for a plain rice instead. This alone can stand on its own so we think better to have this a la carte next time (or we think they have this as an upgrade), and just order a plain samgyupsal set.
It’s actually weird we still went home very happy even if some items included in the set were not that stellar enough for the craze. Next time, we’d try their other sets, maybe individual sets so we may choose what we really like.
Value for money: We find it too expensive at first but with the quantity, yeah, it can be worth the buck. If you wanna dine with unlimited meat, this not for you. However, for those wanting a good ambiance, Soban K-Town Grill can be one of your top choices.
